Random Shots

 As we ease into the weekend, let’s take a look at a couple of preview shots of battles coming up on The Joy of Wargaming.  First up a look at Osprey’s “Black Ops” which features a surveillance fight gone wrong when competing espionage agencies arrive to gather blackmail from...

Finished Figs

 Just a couple quick shots of some quick paint jobs today.  My 15mm fantasy adventures needed some Bowman at home in the woods.  These DemonWorld figures have amazing detail for the scale. Best of all, you can order them individually. And what the heck the XCOM fan in me...

Cha’alt 28

The Blackraven action has shifted to the alien planet of space weirdos some call Cha’alt.  And that means it is time for some eye-candy.  Here we see the Cult of the Spicy Wyrm, ambushed by the ragtag band on the right.  For some reason, Cobalt-15 brought the MSB along...

Rogue Stars Eye Candy

 What can I say? I’m a sucker for a good infiltration mission.  Here, the crew of a tramp freighter have snuck into Starport Moai to re-clone a couple of forcibly infected crewmembers.  This looks like a job for Gold Cross.  Not even an mRNA scrambler shot of nano-trackers can...

The Very Model of A Modern Wargame General

 The modern table continues to take shape. A bit of screen, a bit of scrap wood, and a bit of sand… And you’ve got some nice tall fences. I’m not crazy about these fences.  I should have oriented the screen diagonally to make a diamond pattern, and the cloth...

Modern Conflicts Call for Modern Solutions

Starting to amass a little ultra-modern warfare collection for use with Black Ops.  To date, I’ve only ever played that game using sci-fi figures, but for the first time in a long time, I’m starting to get a handle on how modern warfare can be wargamed.  More on that...

Death Cult for Cuties

Alternative Armies’ sci-fi death cult paints up great. All right, smart boys, so it’s actually the Post-Apocalyptic warband (HOFP05).  In the House of Wargaming, we treat them as cultists.  Look at them robes and death masks and heads on pikes – what else could they be? Vince Venturella over...

Rogue Stars – Gauntlet

 When old Andrea Sfiligoi tells you that a game is built for four to six models, he means it! Tried running a gauntlet style run of five figs through a field controlled by ten figs, and it took a long time.  Each character in Rogue Stars, is characterized by...

Eye Candy

Not a lot to say here.  I snatched a bunch of screencaps from recent videos posted up at the YouTube channel, Joy of Wargaming.  Full battle reports are available there.  For those who lack the patience for such things, here’s a brief rundown of the action so far, with...

Alternative Sci-Fi Pulp Adventure Armies Figures

Here’s a quick line-up of a nice batch of pulp sci-fi figures, ready for the table. Including a few civilian types, to help flesh out the space station. Still trying to work out the best way to grab photos using my cell phone....
